Puckboys – Book Two
by Eden Finley & Saxon James
I enjoyed this second book in the Puckboys series, I liked both main characters, but at times I felt so sorry for Tripp, hiding his feelings for Dex the way he had to, and Dex being so utterly unaware of how much his best friend was struggling, mind you I felt sorry for Dex when he couldn’t understand why Tripp was pulling away and needing his own space.
When one of Dex’s ‘bright ideas’ ends up causing all sorts of issues, both between Tripp and Dex and in their careers and with their families, it could make or break their friendship.
It would be tough to be in love with your best friend and know there is no way anything could happen because they are into the opposite sex. That Tripp has managed to navigate their friendship as well as he has, especially with Dex being so touchy-feely all the time showed just how much importance he put on their friendship. I felt terrible for both Tripp and Dex the way Tripp’s friends carried on about how close they were, and how they treated Dex when Tripp invited him away with them, I thought it was pretty unfeeling of them on several counts. I would have liked to see Tripp stand up to them and not go along with their plan to keep them apart.
I enjoyed the way these two started to explore a more intimate relationship with each other and loved how eager Dex was to make a go of things once he realises his feelings. I thought they could have communicated a bit better so they were both on the same page, but I guess there has to be some tension and something to resolve, as much as I love things to be smooth sailing all the way, I know it isn’t always like that and really, the angst around this is very low.
I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
The worst part of being in love with my straight best friend is the fact he’s too oblivious to see it.
Years of pining have left me exhausted, and I need a break from Dex. I need space to get over my feelings. But when his relationship falls apart and he turns to me for comfort, I cave immediately.
If there’s one thing I hate more than being hurt, it’s seeing Dex struggle. I can’t leave him in a time of need, even if my friends say it’s my biggest downfall.
They say Dexter Mitchale is my weakness, but if that’s true, I don’t want to be strong.
I’ve always been the dumb one. It’s what I’m known for, and usually I don’t let it get to me.
I have hockey, and I have my best friend, Tripp. What more do I need?
To settle down? No thank you. Marriage? Hard pass.
According to ex-girlfriends, that makes me “irresponsible.”
But the solution I come up with to get over my fear of commitment might be my dumbest idea yet. Not only does it have team management breathing down my neck, but it puts a strain on my friendship with Tripp.
This PR nightmare could lose me the only person I’ve ever loved.
Losing girlfriends is nothing. Losing Tripp? It’s not an option.
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep him.
